Figure 5

Change in obtained DS for different initial concentrations of tapioca starch/water mixtures. This shows the ratio of starch to water mixed prior to the gelatinisation stage. Water content of the starch, and water losses were negligible, but additional water is present during the enzyme reaction, because this is added as an aqueous solution (0.5 mL per g starch). Reaction time was 1 hr.
